On June 4, 1917, the first Pulitzer Prize was awarded. The Pulitzer, which is awarded to a wide range of written media forms from reporting to poetry, is still an honor in the literary world to this day. "The Goldfinch" by Donna Tartt received the award in 2014 for fiction, forever solidifying it as an important work in American literature. Tartt, a novelist by trade, had her first book published in 1992. In honor of Tartt's 22 years of writing, assembled here are the 22 most recent Pulitzer-winning novels. All information and book summaries have been taken from the Pulitzer website, with the exception of years 1994 and 1992, whose descriptions came from Amazon, and 1993 which came from the Grove Atlantic.
